Singapore is home to most of BLP's Asia-Pacific contingent — despite having launched its office relatively recently in 2007 — where the firm concentrates on advising clients on debt issues, structuring cross-border transactions, and minimising regulatory and tax implications.
It specialises in corporate and asset finance, banking, international arbitration, project finance, as well as private client services. Sectors targeted in Singapore include mining, oil, gas and renewables, shipping and aviation.
In Hong Kong, the firm advises clients that invest in high-value real estate and capital assets, including infrastructure, mining, energy and natural resources, retail and hotels in the greater China region. The office also advises Chinese and others on local and outbound investment in sectors ranging from aviation to energy.
Regional clients include HSBC, Standard Chartered, the Singapore Exchange, Hong Kong Electric, Chevron and the Tata Power Company.
The Asia Pacific profile is an edited version of a full write-up that appears in The Lawyer Asia Pacific 150, a comprehensive analysis of the legal market in the region that ranks the top 100 local firms and leading 50 international players by headcount.
